We had absolutely great weather this year. High 70's, blue skies every day, and it wasn't even that humid, thankfully. If Florida weather was always like that, I'd finally give in to Jim's request to move there.
So after a small delay in our flight to Tampa and picking up our rental car, we drove to Plant City which is half way between Tampa and Orlando. This mural was on the wall of the cafe across the street from my Uncle Kenny's antique store.
Here's a picture of Logan with my Uncle Kenny.
Once inside Joann's, I came across this sight. A lady was pushing the cart that contained her obviously pampered pouch named Lily. I just had to take a picture of this and the owner graciously allowed me to photograph her "baby".
The next day we said our goodbyes and drove to Orlando where we would spend the rest of the week. On the way, we stopped at an attraction called Fantasy of Flight. My thought in going there was to give Logan an opportunity to take a ride in a biplane. However, once there and he learned he could go up in a different biplane that he could actually fly, he no longer wanted to just be a passenger in one. Ok, so $250 later and a whole lot more grey hairs on my head, he got his chance to fly a replica of a 1942 Stearman biplane that was used to train pilots during WWII. Here he is in the cockpit prior to taking off.
There he goes as they are speeding up to take off. The pilot is behind him.
And they're up!
Thank goodness the pilot told me she was going to blow smoke or I would have been a wreck thinking something was wrong with the plane. They were gone for about a 1/2 hour and he had a great time. The best part is that flight actually counts toward a pilot's license.
Here's one of my mother-in-law, Emma. Her birthday was the day we were flying home we so we celebrated her birthday while we were down there.
Thanks for stopping by!
